NEW FROM DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF

Reaching hard-to-reach places. It's what led Dr. Michael Youssef to launch a 24/7 satellite television channel in the Middle East. It's what led Jonathan Youssef to jumpstart production of solar-powered audio devices containing the Gospel and Dr. Youssef's messages. It's why the ministry continues to produce programming in new languages. And it continues to be a driving force at Leading The Way—a mission that will continue to drastically shape our ministry efforts in the coming months.

One of Leading The Way's key ministries in reaching the unreached includes distribution of our solar-powered Navigator audio devices—strategically optimized for places where radio signals cannot reach. Over the next 12 months, our goal is to distribute the next 30,000 devices in some of the hardest-to-reach places on earth—places like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, and refugee communities in the West, where access to the Gospel is limited or even forbidden.

It's causing believers from all over the world to unite across cultural and denominational lines.

 

In addition to our Navigator ministry, this fall another movement of God is stirring as a result of your prayers and partnership—and it's causing believers from all over the world to unite across cultural and denominational lines, fervently seek God's face, and plead for a fresh move of the Holy Spirit.

For months, the Lord has been bringing believers together across Ireland, Egypt, and New England to prepare for something that could forever change their communities: Evangelistic Celebrations. Over the next several months, Dr. Youssef will travel to Ireland, Egypt, and New England—all to proclaim the hope of the Gospel to the lost.

These are spiritually difficult places marked by significant challenges:

  • Ireland: where historic political and religious divides call for Gospel clarity and spiritual renewal
  • Egypt: the country of Dr. Youssef's birth, where 90% of the population is Muslim—and where large-scale Christian events are restricted in public spaces
  • New England: the birthplace of our nation's Great Awakenings, now marked by secularism

 
Through year-long mobilization efforts, Leading The Way is working with churches in each region to prepare for the harvest to come: (1) mobilizing congregations to invite unsaved friends and family to the Celebration, (2) equipping them with the tools they need to minister to those who make decisions for Christ at the Celebration, and (3) ensuring long-term spiritual growth by providing resources and training to help churches disciple those who come to faith at the event.

In the words of Dr. Youssef, this is our mission in all things: "that those who don't know Christ come to know Him and those who know Him grow to be like Him." Your partnership is making not just converts but disciples of Jesus Christ—and not just here at home but in some of the hardest-to-reach places on earth. Thank you for standing with us as we proclaim the hope of Christ in spiritually dark places.
